Close Your Eyes Replace Bassist/Vocalist

Posted by - 04:40 PM on 07/14/14
Close Your Eyes bassist/backing vocalist Sonny Vega has left the band in order to focus on his new child. He has been replaced by Alex Whitten.
A lot of you have been asking about Sonny, so we would like to clear that whole thing up. Sonny and his wife are having a baby and he would like to be home to be a full time husband and dad. We are super happy for Sonny, and it just worked out that a long time friend of the band, Alex Whitten, was finishing college at the same time. So, Alex will be taking Sonny's place in the band.

He left pre-Warped, I believe.

Doesn't necessarily mean they're going down the pipe though. Underoath had one original member by the time they put out Disambiguation and they probably could've gone on to make at least two more records with that lineup

I consider myself lucky to have seen the original band playing tiny shows in Abilene gymnasiums and other nearby venues many years ago. They still put out good music though.
